I was happily invited to the launch of Water Coloured Events by Hotel H2O last week along with other bloggers, media persons, and event planners. The launch was held at the 460 sqm Pacific Ballroom (the largest public space in the hotel) and what’s fantastic with this room is its signature element — “a dazzling 22-by-1.5 meter aquarium wall that wraps around the inner section of the room”. Opposite to the aquarium wall is the equally magnifique view of the Manila Bay where you can take a good look at the sunset. I enjoyed the canapes but not the cocktails because obviously, I can’t drink. The dinner banquet was freshly and delectably prepared by Hotel H2O’s culinary team and they did not disappoint my rather picky taste. I particularly liked their spareribs and mini cake desserts. The icing was so yummy, not too sweet. We were also lucky to have enjoyed their mermaid show! Oh, how I wish my kids were with me.

Sadly, I was not able to finish the program which started really late. I know, it is still my bad and for that, I truly apologize. But, mind you, I came on time, so I also left on time (that’s what mothers do after all!). Even more sadly is that many invitees were late. The Hotel H2O team was so kind and cool enough to understand that it was a Monday night, strike day (for jeepneys) and their location in Manila is not exactly friendly to most attendees who usually come from work somewhere. I left at around 8:30 PM and I still saw some vacant seats on my way out. Sad sight but still a good night and good food, nonetheless.

I’ve talked to some of the account executives and told them what I think which is — it would be hard to sell some functions such as weddings and debuts because of the whole park theme, ambiance and entrance/exit issues unless of course the couples or celebrants are into aquatic themes. With all honesty, they agreed with me and tried to explain to me how they try to compensate these issues by offering good food, top quality service, added value experiences through its unique encounters with the friendly marine life, aquatic shows and attractions and conducive venues. We all agreed however that it would be very easy to sell their kiddie party packages and family corporate events. What I like about Hotel H2O is that they know their weaknesses and they try to look for ways to compensate them and they also know how to capitalize their strengths, hence the more synergized team-up with The Manila Ocean Park.

All in all, Water Coloured Events has six huge spaces, varying in sizes and offerings and one meeting room. Function rooms can also be extended to other rooms in order to accommodate more people.
